This burial site is approximately five miles west of Daisy, Oklahoma, on the ranch of Benny Wyrick, III. It is not fenced and is in a densely wooded area. Due to the fact that it was canvassed in the fall, there was a heavy blanket of leaves on the ground preventing an accurate count of unidentified graves. We counted five, but felt there were probably more. There were six stones with names. It was canvassed November 11, 1980 by Ruth Williams and Gwen Walker.

Translation:
God the father, who sent me
has given me these and I
would that not one be lost.
But that they will continue
until the last day, when all
will be in that resurrection.
What a great day that
resurrection will be.

No scripture reference made
on this stone.

We wish to thank Mrs. Mary
Wesley of Antlers, OK for the
above translation. This is "Old
Choctaw", and very few can
still translate it. Mrs. Wesley
was 80 years of age when she did
this translation.
